An open source electrocardiogram
When I started my practice over six years ago, one of our bigger expenses was purchasing an ECG machine. Future docs starting their own practices may be spared this cost if Dr. Ivor Kovic has his way:
If this project fulfills its purpose such people could build their own affordable, safe and clinically useful ECGs or have someone else do it for them. Since the solution would be open and free, interested companies could start producing and selling it for a more competitive price than those of commercially available products on the market today.
